The good folks at Baker have done a great job with Evidence for God. Edited by William A. Dembski and Michael R. Licona, this is a one volume quick reference guide to apologetics.
Contained within the book are fifty articles (as the subtitle states it “arguments”) for faith from the Bible, history, philosophy, and science.
The articles are concise, well-written, and very informative. I cannot imagine finding a better book for those who desire to defend their faith, or strengthen their faith.

This book takes top notch philosophers, scientists, historians, archeologists, etc, and combines some of their essays on topics ranging from the Cosmological Argument all the way to the historical resurrection of Jesus.

I recommend this book highly for a decent understanding of the foundations for the Christian beli ...more

If you're interested in Apologetics you'll like this thorough collection of essays. It's a quick read, but there are few common threads that bind the overall book together which made it hard for me to follow. The entire "Question of Science" section was too deep for this liberal arts major. The arguments in the book have been debated many times over, so I don't see this as a vehicle to change any minds.

Excellent book to study about the evidence for the accuracy of the Bible, God and Jesus. Many different noted Bible Scholars cover the various topics detailing current research, archeology, historical accuracy and reliability, etc. Anyone studying this book with an open mind can learn.

50 short chapters addressing the most common challenges to the Christian faith. Seems to be particularly aimed at young college students. It would be excellent for them (or anyone else).
